    Maybe Christina Green's Mom can push him more than any of us, though I intend to write to him and call his offices this week.  Best to you Desert Rose this holiday season.

    From an email I received last night

    I've heard a lot of promises from politicians since my daughter was murdered in Tucson, Arizona, including President Obama. But I am still waiting for them to act.

    And I'm not alone in my frustration. As horrible as it sounds, mass shootings have become common in our country, and 34 Americans are murdered with guns every single day. That means 48,000 people will be murdered with guns in the president's next term. Yet our broken laws remain broken, and our leaders have yet to step forward with a plan to end gun violence.

    We need to make sure today's terrible tragedy is the last of its kind. We need to make a promise to ourselves and demand action from our leaders.

    Please join me in sharing your feelings -- and your promise -- with those who have lost so much:

    Thank you for your support,

    Roxanna Green
